Group rock climbing at the ARC

Rock Wall at the ARC



With more than 50 routes of varying difficulty, the ARC Rock Wall is a modern facility that offers something for everyone. If you're new to climbing, our friendly and helpful staff will help you get started with everything you need to know. If you're looking to push your abilities to the next level, the wall's realistic rock-like texture and features will help you refine your technique indoors. Bring a belay partner or just drop by and meet new friends. Check out the classes and trips on the Outdoor Adventures web page to learn how you can climb outside.

Events and Classes


Belay Lessons and Tests

The Rock Wall will open roped climbs on April 11th, 2022. In order to climb our roped routes patrons will have to take a belay lesson and pass a skills test. Belay lessons happen at the beginning of every timeslot Monday through Thursday. Please sign up for a belay lesson here. Walk in registration may not be available. Signups open 5 days in advance. Each lesson can only accommodate 4 people max. Once a patron has passed our belay test, they must check in with staff upon arrival to get their belay card before climbing. A belay card indicates to staff that patrons have passed the belay test and are approved to climb roped routes. 


Free Climb Nights

Patrons must reserve a time slot ahead of time. Reservations become available 24 hours before. All Rock Wall patrons will be given a Rock Wall Orientation at the beginning of their session, this should only take 5 minutes. Free Climb Nights are free and do not require a membership. Unfortunately, we will only be offering bouldering at this time. Top Rope climbing will become available again later in the quarter.
